Forgive Me, And I Will Be Forever Indebted
Written by: Haley Bresnahan
We have been together for a while now.
My life with you is so happy and blissful.
I feel more fulfilled now than I ever have,
Simply knowing that you are all mine.
And still, I feel I must beg your forgiveness for the way I have acted in the past.
I hope you will find it in your heart of hearts to forgive me, so here it goes.
I’m sorry for all the times that I have taken your presence for granted.
I apologize for simply assuming you would always be there to properly support me.
I understand if that felt you feeling scarred.
I’m sorry for fantasizing about other types that were so completely different from you.
I apologize for playing around with those types in selfish and desperate experimentation.
I understand if that pained you to watch with your own eyes.
I apologize for refusing to give you exactly what you wanted, exactly when you wanted it.
I understand if that made you feel ignored.
I’m sorry for ridiculing you in front of my friends and family.
I wish I could take back the hateful words I used to describe you whenever I was frustrated.
I understand that those were things that never should have left my mouth and entered your ears.
I’m sorry that I didn’t listen to my mother when she told me you were perfect for me.
I shouldn’t have scoffed and rolled my eyes.
The truth is, when we were younger I wasn’t mature enough yet to truly love you the way you deserved.
For I thought love was something fickle, and paper-thin.
I had no idea I’d find love in you years later, and I never thought I would be able to see the ways in which you had always been there for me.
You’ve given me one-sided unconditional love for years, and have patiently waited for me to notice.
And I finally have.
So in case it was unclear before, I just wanted to say
I love you with all of OUR heart.
You are my body, after all.
And I’m pretty sure we’re together in this for the long run.
